[INSIGHTS] Incanto: Magic behind the dance

Incanto - a theatrical magic spectacular

As you count down to the opening of Incanto, the show’s very own dancers are counting their steps to perfection.

Find your emotions strummed in great anticipation to the music, with amazing contemporary choreography delivered in perfect synchronization – working hand in hand with mind-blowing illusions to deliver a dazzling show.

We take a look at what it takes to create dance magic on stage.

1.       The warm up

Every graceful demeanor and lithe twirl across the stage requires an intensive session of warm-up; you don’t want any torn ligaments halfway through a superb dance number.

2.       Share that energy

If you have ever caught a dance performance live, you know that stage presence is pretty vital. The characters, expressions and emotions that you portray can be seen even from afar – you know what they say about body language – you would want to capture the audience’s attention and draw their interest right into the story.

”Spirit fingers” do a lot of talking

So do exaggerated poses

3.       Training, training and more training

Apart from the surge of emotions, dance steps have to be pulled off with the right technique to awe as well. Kicks, leaps, and spins have to be executed with not just confidence, but with accuracy in detail that will assure the choreography is at its best.
